What I do?
I am an Atlassian Consultant and Drupal Expert. Author of Mastering Jira books. In my free time I usually roam around with my camera (My Blackberry Passport, Android Phone, DSLR and Action Camera - Yes I like to keep all of them with me :)) and take pictures of anything that generates curiosity in me. I used to think that I am an amateur photographer, but I don't take that many pictures to qualify for that title. You can check my Resume as well.
Little background about me
I am from Delhi where I lived in a place called Lawrence Road (Keshav Puram) which is really nice place. I spent all my life there and I love this place. I did my schooling from DL DAV Model School, Shalimar Bagh and I have wonderful memories of studying there. After school I did my engineering from Amity School of Engineering and Technology. I graduated in 2003 and since then I have been doing lot of things in life, have been working continuously since then.
I am an Early Riser
I usually get up at 4 AM in the morning and start working immediately, yes I am a morning person. This first half of the day is the time when I am the most efficient. After taking my lunch I usually do just tasks.
I am crazy about planning and Time Management
I don't just let myself into doing things without any order. I love doing things when they are supposed to be done. I am eccentric planner and I only do whatever my org-mode and my google calendar tells me to do.
